Missing Your Favorite Con? Enter Kaiju Con-line!
Kaiju Con-line press release

Mark your calendars, Monster Kids! Due to the cancellation of conventions and festivals around the globe, several dedicated daikaiju fans have joined forces to create a new event for the monster masses.
Kaiju Con-Line is a free “virtual” event being held on July 11th and 12th, the same weekend that would have hosted the annual gathering of Godzilla fanatics in Chicago; once that cancellation was announced, a clawful of motivated monster fiends converged to form this online convention that kaiju enthusiasts from around the world can enjoy from the comfort of their own home.
The Kaiju Con-Line website will act as a hub to connect those fans to kaiju-centric activities, including the virtual show floor with a curated list of kaiju sellers, video programming including a monstrous series of panels and presentations broadcast live all weekend. The Artist Alley gallery will dazzle attendees with beautiful monster imagery — and if you like what you see from a particular creator, make sure to check out their web store and stream schedule for live art demos. Additional galleries have been curated by our kaiju cosplay team, kaiju model kit builders, kaiju toy photographers — the list goes on because more fun features are being added every day until the event kicks off on the morning of July 11th. As a tribute to the Festival that will be missed, we have a special video retrospective streaming all weekend and a massive photo gallery of memories from that convention.
If that’s not enough, Kaiju Con-Line will actually have kaiju celebrity guests involved thanks to Celebrity ICONS, these iconic celebrities appearing at this unconventional event: KING KONG ESCAPES (1967) star Linda Miller, DESTROY ALL PLANETS (1968) star Carl Craig and ULTRAMAN: TOWARDS THE FUTURE (1995) star Dore Kraus to the digital lineup! These English speaking celebs will share stories from the sets and behind the scenes of their careers during their live-streamed Q&A sessions on Saturday and Sunday of the event.
Our goal is to bring the kaiju convention to you. Please see more details on the Kaiju Con-line website and we look forward to sharing this experience with you!
